Meeting of bloging friends

Tuesday, October 30, 2007 at 11:59 AM
I can not say enough about what wonderful ladies Robyn, Ronell and Casey are: meeting the latter two today in Paris.

After exchanging of greetings and coffee we ventured put for the day. Finally, these ladies brought glorius sunshine with them!

First a nice walk to the Sennalier art store where I wowed a real french painter's smock but didn't buy of course.

Next lots of window shopping while in search of the perfect place to have lunch....and we found it! My favorite: the raspberry and beets over soft ricotta cheese... Magnifique!

Now, with bellya full and happy hearts we wandered over to the Luxembourg Gardens to sit and sketch. I had casey in front of me so she made it into today's sketch.
It began to sprinkle a bit and then really poured for a few minutes. So we wandered some more.

By now I was thinking they had conspired to take me on a death march.

We happened into the Montparnasse cemetarie and went in search of Jim Morrison's grave. I got back to the apt. and looked it up (we had'nt found it) only to see he is at Cimetiere du Pere Lachaise. LOL

Another art store' then a stop for hot chcolate and more conversation. Casey continued to sketch.

We walked back to the metro/train station, hugged goodbye and went our separate way.

Ronelle and Casey,
Thank you again for coming to spend the day with me. You were just as I imagined and only wish you lived around the corner! I had the best adventure today and really loved our jaunt through the cemetery. I only hope someday to reciprocate. Again, merci beaucoup!
